FAQ

For which types of companies is Baselift intended?2024-04-20T00:39:02+02:00

Our services are tailored to the needs of providers of physical products and services who don’t (yet) have large research and design departments or the expertise to approach design as holistically as they should and want to. However, we do not work for everyone.

✓ Great Fits
Consumer Electronics, Sports Equipment, Healthcare, Vehicles & Mobility Products, Household Appliances, Tools & Work Equipment, Kids‘ Products, and more.

✘ No Thanks
Military Products, Weapons, Tobacco & Alcohol Products, Pharmaceutical Products, Fashion, Food, Software Only.

Why not just hire a regular freelancer, agency or full-time designer?2024-04-20T00:46:22+02:00

Valid question. Here are a few points to consider.

No sunk costs
The yearly expense of hiring a senior-level designer, whether as an in-house resource or through a reputable agency, has exceeded the 75,000€ ($80.000) mark, not including benefits. Additionally, your expenses shouldn’t encompass agency overheads. There might also be times when you lack a consistent workload for them, resulting in paying for unproductive hours. Our subscriptions solve these problems.

No annoying contracts and negotiations
If you hate haggling over prices and dealing with contracts, then you are like us. We take all that stress away with a flat, yet fair, monthly fee and a few simple terms that make hiring creative professionals easier and more human again.

No time wasted
Our way of working minimises administrative tasks and eliminates all unnecessary meetings, ensuring efficient decision-making based on actual work results. This means, no fancy presentations, no time-consuming interim status meetings, no elaborate reports. We reduce the number of meetings and briefings to the essentials.

Experienced professionals only
While we appreciate the value of nurturing young designers, our approach prioritizes swift and high-quality outcomes. This is why we exclusively engage senior-level talents to ensure quick and high-quality results.

Is there a cap on the number of requests I can make?2024-04-20T00:47:11+02:00

No. With your subscription, you have the freedom to queue up as many design requests and strategy gigs as you like. However, they will be fulfilled one at a time.

How fast will I receive my results?2024-04-20T00:47:53+02:00

The turnaround time will depend on the complexity of your request. Most requests are processed within 2 to 5 days.
However, it is important that design requests are phrased correctly. For example, „Can you develop a design for a ten-piece product range?“ is not just one design request, but ten. As long as large projects are broken down into reasonable work packages, we can ensure swift delivery.

What if I don’t like the results?2024-04-20T00:48:24+02:00

While this situation can arise, rest assured it’s not an issue. Our subscribers benefit from unlimited revisions until they are fully content with the outcome.

How does the pause option work?2024-04-20T00:49:06+02:00

We understand that your design needs may not always fill an entire month. Whether you have just a few design requests or don’t need constant design work, our subscription offers a convenient solution – the ability to pause.
Our billing cycles operate on a 31-day basis. Consider this scenario: you sign up, actively use the service for 7 days and then decide to pause your subscription. In this case, the billing cycle will also pause, leaving you with 24 days of service to use within the next six months.
You can pause your subscription twice during its current running period.

Who are the designers?2024-04-20T00:49:31+02:00

Baselift is a collective of freelance design experts from various disciplines, from graphic design, product design and animation to experience design and brand strategy. To guarantee our clients fast, high-quality results and a smooth experience, we only engage talents with at least ten years of experience in their field who have successfully worked with companies of all sizes, from emerging start-ups to established SMEs and global market leaders. That is our senior-level promise.

Are there any refunds if I don’t like the service?2024-04-20T00:50:12+02:00

Yes. During the first month of your subscription, you can request a refund. However, in this case, you won’t be authorized to use the work results that were generated up to that point.

Can I cancel my subscription any time?2024-04-20T00:51:07+02:00

Yes. Our subscription operates on a monthly basis. If you decide to cancel, you can do so at any point, with the cancellation taking effect at the end of the ongoing period.

Hi, I am Stefan Hermann

Founder of Baselift

For over a decade I have been designing products and experiences in and for leading design agencies and companies of almost any size, helping them delight customers, drive business success, and sometimes win prestigious awards.

In doing so, I have noticed that where large corporations and global brands staff their internal development departments with numerous experts or hire renowned consulting and design agencies, most companies are not able to do the same. As a result, many great companies fail as the experience they deliver to their customers isn’t as good as it could and must be.

I believe every company should have unlimited access to strategic and holistic design expertise to perform at its highest potential.

I will be your direct contact and trusted guide throughout your collaboration with Baselift.

In doing so, I have noticed time and again that where large corporations and global brands staff their internal development departments with numerous experts or hire renowned consulting and design agencies, most small and medium-sized companies do not have the capacity, workload, experience or financial resources to do the same. As a result, many great companies fail as the experience they deliver to their customers isn’t as good as it could and must be.

In 2018 I founded Baselift, because I believe that every company should have access to strategic and holistic design expertise.

Some of our clients:

After some success with our newly developed sports and fitness training, we reached a dead end. We knew we were not getting anywhere on our own. Baselift helped us to look at our idea from different perspectives, filter out the essentials and develop a promising vision with a concrete focus.
Kim Koch, Founder Schiimpf

Stefan has the ability to translate customer needs and business challenges into focused strategies and solutions. He has helped us grow our tiny house startup into one of the most relevant brands in our market.

Hagen Kober, CEO Tiny Homeland
We were struggling to communicate to our customers all the things we could do for them and why that was valuable to them. Through a call that lasted only an hour, Stefan has already made his mark on our communications. Now, literally everyone says they understand us.
Peter Brandl, your.company
When we hired Baselift, our company was suffering from an outdated public image that completely undermined the quality of our service. After a short time, we realized that their approach was not just to provide us with the requested new website, but to solve our problem holistically. With Baselift’s help, we were able to develop a consistent, high-quality experience for our customers.
Marcel Martin, CEO Bürgel GmbH
